Not my favorite art journal entry

So this was on my own doing a Primitive Portrait and I just threw down color and tried to remember technique.
I loved this house corner of the page.  I used the scraper and it was fun.
I love that there is a heart on the girl and also a heart on the house.  As if her heart is calling her home in the chaotic world/page she is living in. 
Here is today's journey.

Let's Explore -- Vintage Cameras

I pulled all my cameras down to clean them.  Since I had them all in one place I thought it would make for a great photo exploration. 
 I love these with the attached bulbs--so adorable.

Over the years people have given me cameras and I have only had to buy a few.  Somehow they mean more since everyone has been given them to me.


 It is time to put these away....ugh!
One last shot.

Rainbow Art Journal

I was not feeling it today but the accomplishment was that I finished an entry.  Do you feel it is better journal when you feel this way or to just give it a break?  Since I am doing this 365 I am not allowing myself a break but these are things I am thinking about.

Mermaid Art Journal

This is one of my favorite entries that I did last year.  I really enjoying painting her and her friends.  I did not think about anything I just played with the page.  I see where it could improve but only if I look.  I really like just looking at pieces and feeling what shines through without a critical eye.
